Wright Sites x PechaKucha
The Westcott House Foundation, Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, and Wright sites across the nation are teaming up with PechaKucha to present a live online global event in celebration of Wright’s work and legacy. The event, entitled “Wright Sites x PechaKucha,” will feature presentations in the highly-visual and efficient PechaKucha style, which consists of 20 image-based slides that automatically advance after 20 seconds, with each talk lasting only 400 seconds.
Attendees can live-stream the event online on Monday, June 8, 2020, at 9:00 p.m. EST. Presentations will be available to view within 24 hours after the event. No advance registration is required for this free event.
Wright Sites x PechaKucha will feature curators and speakers from public Frank Lloyd Wright sites including:
Fallingwater (Mill Run, Pennsylvania)
Taliesin (Iowa County, Wisconsin)
Taliesin West (Scottsdale, Arizona)

The owners of two private Wright homes, Tonkens House (Cincinnati, Ohio) and Brandes House (Sammamish, Washington) will also give presentations. Both serve on the Board of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy.
Additional speakers include Mark Dytham, MBE, co-founder of PechaKucha; photographer Andrew Pielage, who will share his quest to photograph every Frank Lloyd Wright structure ever built; Bill James, an architect with Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, who will share his career journey studying and designing Wright-related projects; and Karen Severns and Koichi Mori, a couple dedicated to raising awareness of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural legacy in Japan.
